thinking-with sounds

Thinking-with sound in sociology takes many forms, and only few of them are depicted here.

From soundwalking and field recordings, which oscillate between ethnographic inquiry and aesthetic experience, to the making of installations and performances for different modes of production of knowledge.

In all cases however, there is a focus on the aesthetic as generative, as the maker and teller of associations, as socio-logy. The materiality of knowledge, through the aesthetic play. As possibility to expand what it is that we do as sociologists, to conceive our practice as ethico-aesthetic, slow and careful.

Staying with the trouble. Response-able. Knowledge as an addition to reality rather than an explanation. Value-generating rather than evaluation.
